    • Using Vagrant, Chef and Virtual Box in Your Development Environment
      Jeremy Quinton

      Virtual Box used in conjunction with Vagrant and a provisioning tool like chef or puppet, are a great set of tools to add to any PHP developers arsenal.These tools can be used so that all developers have the same development environment, and help to maximise dev/prod parity, which makes things like "it works on my machine" a thing of the past. I will talk about the advantages of these tools and provide enough detail and examples so that you can start using them in your everyday working environments.

      About Jeremy
      I'm a South African currently living and working in London for the past 5 and a half years. I have over 10 years experience building, deploying and maintaining web applications primarily on the Lamp stack. I have worked in many different sectors including internet hosting, agency, mobile and most recently charity. I am currently working as a PHP contractor for a well known charity on their Scalable Fundraising platform. When I'm not coding I enjoy fiddling with new technologies, traveling, watching Liverpool FC and a good bottle of wine.

    Are there any experienced PHP Programmers living around Clapham Junction who would want to meet up for a beer sometime and chat about development. I have over 5 years experience developing web applications, I have an interest in programming medium to large scale web applications (Not so intested in just pumping out a large amount of small applications) I have my own ways I like to do things, and think I do a good job of them, however its always good to keep an open mind and see how other developers are doing things. I'm interested in meeting other developers who are experienced but open minded. You never know how we can help each other out with suggestions, or even the next lead on a job etc.

      I made amazing trout yesterday. Would you like the recipe? (I assure you, it is more interesting than your spammy URL!)
